The storm and tidal currents that sweep the surfaces of continental shelves imprint a variety of morphologic and textural patterns on these surfaces. As the surfaces aggrade, the grain size gradients and bedform arrays become the textures, structures and stratification patterns of the resulting sedimentary sequences. This paper describes textural gradients and bedform arrays characteristic of shelf surfaces, and the process of strata formation.
